This was delicious, and very easy to prepare. I always wanted the recipe for this, so now that I have it and it turned out so good, I will be making this again and again.

I made this for my husband over St. Patrick's Day because he loves pistachios. It was a hit. Thanks for the recipe. It's a bit like Watergate Salad but with coconut.

This was awesome! I couldn't stop eating it and DH absolutely loved it. In fact, we ate the whole thing in one day. Can you say "oink"?
